    pickups have a tranny tunnel too, maybe just not as big. He is right though its not a straight bolt in. You'll need to get it positioned how ya like it and then drill some holes. What do you want a bench for? Is it date night or something?

    Sit 3 in front and remove the back seat for more gear. Maybe not the most popular mod

    The pickups and subs also have a raised section of floor where the seats go . Blazers are flat . Thats why blazers have the tall seat brackets , designed for tilting forward for back seat access in a 2 door application with higher ground clearance .

    So the take away is that the bench seats in trucks and suburans are the same.

    I think you might be able to use a bench seat from the 88+ trucks as they have flat floors too. Take a measuring tape to the junk yard and check but I think they would fit just drill mounting holes.
